Forms of hosting services

A hosting solution is associated with hoarding and/or sharing given web content on a web hosting server administered by a web hosting distributor. There are various sorts of hosting services used for different ends, so let's have a glimpse at these. Doing so, you can determine what you need, on the basis of whether you wish to run a blog, email aliases, or to share files with friends and associates.

- File hosting: a service delivered by particular file storage providers, which allows you to share huge files. These could be disk images, movies, audio files, archived documents, and so on. This service is also known as file storage, and its single aim is to share files, since it does not support web page uploading. The moment the files are uploaded, you will either get a randomly generated download link for each of them, or you will be able to view a table of all the files in a directory, but you will be unable to see .html or .php web page files in your web browser. Free-of-cost file storage services are often supported by displaying adverts next to the download links, while a timer compels you to await a certain spell of time to view them. A given file can be downloaded with limited speed. If you run a paid file storage plan, there are no restrictions as to how many files you can upload/download immediately, and also there is no restriction in regard to the download speed or the file size.

At the moment, with the assistance of the cPanel hosting companies, "file hosting" is being renamed to the more faddish "cloud hosting". This is a thoroughly fallacious interpretation of the actual definition of "cloud hosting". An actual cloud website hosting environment would split the load between different bunches of servers in a cluster, which are devoted to serving miscellaneous web hosting services (electronic mail, data storage, stats, DNS, databases, hosting Control Panel, etc.) So, the file hosting service is simply a sort of a data storage hosting solution, not a cloud hosting one. It's not even close.

- Image hosting: resembling file hosting; specific providers offer a hosting solution for images exclusively. This hosting kind is good if you want to share an enormous number of pictures with chums or partners since the service is commonly free. You will obtain a randomly generated link for every image or album and you can then share this link. As with the file hosting solution, .html and .php files are not compatible, so the solution cannot be used for web sites.

- E-mail hosting: a service committed to tackling your e-mail aliases. Some corporations offer web hosting services for web sites, but do not provide an e-mail solution. If you desire to possess an e-mail address with your domain name but do not desire to have a website, then the email hosting service is what you require. You can set up email address accounts and administer them, but there will be no web service for the domains. The email hosting solution includes incoming POP/IMAP and outgoing SMTP mail servers.

- Video hosting: this service permits you to upload and share video files. You can either share a link to a specific video clip, or you can embed the video file in your web site that is hosted elsewhere. The benefit of availing of this method in lieu of uploading the video file in a hosting account is that the video file produces a given amount of CPU load, so with a handful of videos and a few hundred visitors, you may have trouble with your web page hosting quotas. Embedding the video will allow you to administer as many video files as you want to without bothering about system quotas.

- Web site hosting: this is the solution that you need if you wish to possess a website. To some extent, it comprises all of the aforementioned hosting sorts since, along with your web sites, you can also host pictures and files, you can keep databases and email box accounts, upload videos, and so on. At CS HOST WEB, for example, you can examine web hosting and dedicated web hosting packages that allow you to have all of the aforementioned services in one place. There may be limitations based on the type of hosting service that you've picked - a free hosting plan, a paid shared hosting account, a VPS or a dedicated server. Depending on that, your web hosting package may be better or worse in comparison with the usual email/file/video/image hosting plans that are tailored for particular web content only.
